Chiswick returned for an all mighty battle against London Edwardians. If you were a fan of 90’s rap, then public enemy’s classic ‘Harder than you think” comes to mind. This opening exchanges were dominated by London Edwardians. Wave after wave of attack came but were dealt with our defensive gladiators Wolfman & Chris Butler.
Chiswick were able to hold London Edwardians for over 30 minutes, with James “I still live with my mum” Mason holdings attacks at bay on the right flank. I recently asked James how his tinder life is going since he is living the dream at home. He replied “It’s a tricky sell but Charles Offord is on hand to give me advice. Charles always available for tinder advice.
The initial goal from London Edwardians came from a well worked goal on the left flank, with a piercing midfield pass into the right hand side of the D and a cross goal shot. Chiswick replied well and the midfield pairing of Sam Alton and Scott ‘smelly shirt’ Elliott were able to take control of the game and utilise the pace of Ramon. Earlier in the week Ramon asked the team to give their input on how to cook a bacon sandwich. His cooking skills are something that only a mother could love, but his stick skills are as smooth as Bumble (the new tinder) profile with elephant selfies & London marathon selfies to get the all the swipes in West London.
With a high press set form Billy and Ramon, Scott ‘smelly shirt’ Elliott was able to intercept the ball from the 23-yard line. Taking it onto the reverse side, the ball was drilled to debutant Chris Brinkworth. In the warm up Louis Allwood was able to give Chris Brinkworth some shooting tips. His tips were so hot, that the tips given at the Griffin in Kings Cross look lukewarm in comparison. Chris Brinkworth turned 180* on the defender and took it round another defender to then slot the ball into bottom right hand corner.
Some amazing defensive work continued. On the next short corner from London Edwardians, Louis Allwood tipped a drag flick onto the crossbar which DVB was able to clear. A thing of defensive beauty.
The goals conceded by Chiswick were unfortunate, form defensive errors that were capitalised on the top of the D.
DOD moment of the game: Scott ‘smelly shirt’ Elliott for attempting a diagonal aerial to the left flank and playing a squaerial over the top of the left flank and off the pitch.
In the remaining 15 minutes, Chiswick were controlling the game with attack after attack on their keeper. Shooting practice at training is on the cards.
Special mention to Ramon for letting me know what is and isn’t urban fresh in the mean streets of Brentford.…..FYI dabbing was so 2015.
Additional mention for Scott ‘smelly ‘Elliott for failing to provide female hockey players to come join the 3’s & 4’s social. The only reason he could get the troops out for beers.
MOM: Louis Allwood – Cracking saves
DOD: Scott ‘smelly shirt’ Elliott terrible squaerial and outrageous pillow talk.
